After hoping to get bodies over the line before the 11pm transfer window deadline today Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne has failed to do so.
The Millers Boss said earlier in the day that he was playing a ‘bit of a waiting game’ saying that if there was no movement he felt he was in a ‘good place’ but wasn’t sure the Rotherham fans will feel the same way.
Speaking to the Official Site as the window closed, Warney said, ‘We were close on a couple of targets with one keen to come but a team higher up came in so it wasn’t to be.’
The Millers Boss also said that he was expecting a Premier League winger to come but he decided to stop with his parent club which he said was ‘disappointing’.
So, the Millers have brought just one player in – Matt Crooks, during the transfer window. But, there could still be some to come in via the loan system, which isn’t closed yet.
I’m expecting a lot of Rotherham fans to be disappointed that the Millers haven’t been able to swell the squad. I feel a little like that myself. But, it’s no good crying over spilt milk as they say and we have to hope that our injured players come back sooner rather than later.
Now, we have to concentrate on our game at Millwall on Saturday and forget we all sat refreshing the Millers websites/twitter accounts until 11pm this evening.
